Watching videos isn’t the very sharpest, and the stretch option to get films to fill the display is welcome, though in some cases it can flatten things out a little too much, despite the screen’s 16:9 aspect ratio. You can also stream video or music using Wi-Fi over a DLNA network and it can handle MPEG4, WMV, H264 and DivX files. The onboard speaker, however, is disappointing, with a rather tinny, strained sound.
The 3.2Mp camera isn’t anything to write home about and not particularly practical to use, given the size of the device. Still, pic quality isn’t bad and it offers LED flash, multi-shot, panorama and smile detection options, as well as adjustments for white balance and ISO.

Re: US model DOESNT have phone feature
We're not reviewing a North American model.
Skype for Android doesn't support video. That is why it doesn't work on the Galaxy Tab, or any other Android device.
Not quite right
The Galaxy Tab doesn't have 5 home screens. It has between 1 and 9. If you care to use the device for a bit before commenting on it you would realise that you can zoom out (Pinch to zoom style) and then add/delete home pages. This allows you more flexibility.
In case you hadn't come across it you can also zoom out on the actual app pages.
Incidentally I sold my iPad after getting one of these because I prefer the SGT. It's a more usable size and a rather brilliant piece of kit. Evidenced by the fact that 2 weeks later I'm still using it unlike the iPad. Now let the flames begin just because I sold an apple product...
Too little, too much
It's a nice enough tablet, but it's too expensive. £300 would be more sensible. As it is you can get a slightly less polished Chinese tablet with an inferior touchscreen and questionable battery life for £100. That puts a ceiling on the price of this size Android tablet regardless of build quality.
